This year I have six Christmas get-togethers I have to get into my schedule, plus making time to see all the people I haven't seen since this Summer. Holy hectic! I sat down to figure out where I'd be for the almost month long Christmas break I have this year and I was a little overwhelmed. My family has a few unusual schedules to work around this year so we just got one of the get-togethers on the calendar this morning!
One thing that helps me keep it all together is my Erin Condren Life Planner. I was so excited to get it back in July and start planning out my days! I take the planner everywhere I go, whether it's in my bag on the way to class or in my purse when I'm out and about. The only way to keep it all straight is to have everything in one place! I write down all my tests and assignments, any major events I need to remember, and even my photography sessions now. The pockets in the back are fantastic to hold any important papers I might need to bring with me.
I've also been make tons of lists to keep track of all the things I need to remember in a day/week/month. I love to hit up the Target dollar section to find some cute notepads for this purpose! I've got a good stockpile going but I always find one or two more to add to the collection. :) My favorite one lately came with this cute little clipboard which is handy because I never know what odd places I'll find myself making a list in.
Even with all of that, somedays I find myself feeling a little crazy when it comes to my schedule! On days like that, I take a deep breath (occasionally a nap, too) and thank God for blessing me with so many opportunities in life that I have a chance to stress over. Now I'm off to make another list and add it to my planner!
How do you keep your schedule organized?
